we visited Zen for the first time as a group of 8 on Saturday night. After much anticipation upon reading reviews and hearing such raving reports from family and friends, I couldn't wait to finally see and taste what all the fuss was about! first thing I will say is that Zens interior and surroundings are beautiful and very impressive,...

We went with a party of 12 people for a family celebration. Food was fantastic and the service second to none. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Some elements of the meal are good and the rest average (or not good really). Duck samosa is massively dissapointing, not a lack of but terrible flavour. Filo prawns are fine but that's not hard to get wrong. Sushi generally good, salmon very fresh but only the salmon was fresh. The tuna sashimi was obviously defrosted incorrectly (or not fully)...

Never been here before but have heard lots off good about it. It's all true! We had a party of 15 for a birthday bash , if you've never eaten this cuisine before they have a page inside the menu that explains it well ( which I read and followed ) rather than trying things I had not tried before...

Went here for birthday. Had sushi then the mango and duck for main. Next time I would eat more starters.they give you chopsticks and cutlery. Duck was a bit big for chopsticks. Bit confusing. Would have liked to eat my meal with chopsticks. However food was tasty. Very crowded,need to book to ensure a table.staff very attentive and pleasant

Had a beautiful family meal on Sunday afternoon. Staff were great. I was a bit concerned after reading the few negative comments lately, but there were no issues whatsoever during the meal. We had a £100 voucher from September when you could double your money promotion was on which was great value. We got our bill and noticed straight away... More
